Host Cameron asked Lewis about a certain Mordekaiser pick.

"We picked Mordekaiser and got that quadra kill in the bot lane, in a four-versus-two or something. That was crazy, we were well hyped after that.

"We've never played Mordekaiser before!"

Jungler Kanzashi was selected as the analysts' MVP for the day.
